Helios is a low power, mid range performance PC/104 form factor single board computer combining a highly integrated CPU with Diamond Systems’ renowned high-accuracy data acquisition circuitry on a single board, reducing size and cost while increasing ruggedness. Helios utilizes a Vortex integrated single chip CPU operating at 300MHz or 800MHz and 128MB or 256MB of DRAM soldered on-board.
Helios incorporates advanced features such as four USB 2.0 ports, an IDE hard drive interface, mounting capability for a solid state flashdisk up to 4GB, and CRT/LVDS LCD graphics. Helios also provides a 10/100Base-T Ethernet interface, two RS-232 serial ports, two RS-232/422/485 serial ports and legacy keyboard and mouse interfaces.
Helios is extremely rugged, featuring on-board soldered DRAM and -40°C to +85°C fan-less operation. Optional hardwired jumpers and latching connectors are available for increased resistance to shock and vibration. Conformal coating is available as an extra cost option.
